Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-7140) Bump default hive.metastore.client.socket.timeout to 5 minutes
Date Wed, 28 May 2014 21:39:04 GMT
Brock Noland created HIVE-7140:

             Summary: Bump default hive.metastore.client.socket.timeout to 5 minutes
                 Key: HIVE-7140
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Brock Noland

The issue is that OOTB clients often face timeouts when using HMS since many operations in
the HMS completes are long running (e.g. many operations on a table with many partitions).
A few supporting pieces of information:

* The default value of hive.metastore.client.socket.timeout is 20 seconds.
* Since the timeout is client only, the server happy continues doing the requested work
* Clients retry after a small delay to perform the requested work again, often while the server
is still trying to complete the original request
